Unhappy My friend was recently diagnosed.

Hi everyone! I'm new to these forums.

My name is Arthur. My best friend was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and I'm not sure what he's going through. Could use your experiences to help understand and support him!

Thanks

Welcome Arthur

It's really good of you to make the attempt to understand your friend's new life with diabetes.

I think if you read through the threads in the Introduce Yourself section it'll give you a good picture of the struggles those newly diagnosed with diabetes go through. Along with learning about what it takes to gain good control, which is the goal of the members on this forum.

I would like to extend an invitation to your friend to come over and visit us and even join if he'd like.

Welcome, you are being a good friend. For a solid education of the medical aspects, I would like to suggest you and your friend read Blood Sugar 101 together. For the personal side of it, Vee Jay gave you the best way to learn that.
